I never thought to add a rice mixture like this to a taco salad instead of beef, but it was just as filling and much more healthy. I used canned tomatoes and added cumin and some spicy Mrs. Dash to the rice mixture for more flavor. I think this would also be really yummy with some avocado and sour cream - next time!

Delicious salad. Lime flavored tortilla chips go well with this dish.
AMAZING!!!No other words needed
I had never been a lover of Black Beans until this recipe.
I've also used crumbled cornbread when did not have tortilla chips. I add chopped celery to the heated mixture and chopped green onion and avocado to the cold. Lots of flavor ... Delicious
We love having the taco flavor so I make taco "meat" using TVP and our favorite taco seasoning. I usually add a half of a mince onion and zucchini to the seasoning in the water and boil it for a little while, than add the TVP and let cook to the consistence we want. The left overs are perfect for taco burgers in a couple of days.
